Resource Efficient Buildings
What are Resource Efficient Buildings?
Resource Efficient Buildings or “Green Buildings” as we typically know them involves designing buildings that consume less resources for their construction, operations and maintenance stages. We believe that green building or resource-efficient building can contribute largely to reduce the carbon footprint of our urban environments as construction sector is one of the large energy consuming sectors by its sheer size in India. As the population has grown, construction sector also has grown rapidly owing to housing and allied sectors such as commerce and industry have grown in the same proportion.
Sustainability Initiatives is involved in various green building activities such as conducting capacity building workshops, working closely with municipal corporations to institutionalize ”green building’ into the cities and working closely with students and professionals to carry out research in green building. We are involved in conducting various studies and research for improving the implementation of green building measures and supporting initiatives that promote resource efficient building.
